About AMPed NH

AMPed – Advanced Manufacturing Partnerships in Education – is a New Hampshire initiative created to educate and train eager, motivated people for high-wage, high-skill jobs in the advanced manufacturing industry.

Smart Manufacturing. Smart Moves.

By enhancing the programming within the seven institutions within the Community College System of New Hampshire, traditional and non-traditional students can embark on a clear career path from a certificate, degree, and/or industry-recognized certifications to stable, exciting, better-paying jobs.

Enhancing the Economy

By training thousands of Granite State residents for these advanced manufacturing jobs, AMPed NH is enhancing the stability of – and enhancing growth within – the New Hampshire economy. This in turn will attract additional manufacturers to the state, further cementing New Hampshire’s vital manufacturing industry. This effort was made possible by the TAACCT Grant.


Thanks to the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training Grant (TAACCCT) through the US Department of Labor, the Community College System of NH (CCSNH) can further enhance the state’s advanced manufacturing sector by providing necessary degree, certificate and training programs to New Hampshire residents.

Advanced manufacturing jobs with NH companies

With access to nearly $20 million in funding, students will have a clear career path that begins with entry-level jobs and continues to more advanced positions requiring specialized skills. All of these advanced manufacturing jobs are at New Hampshire companies that have worked collaboratively with the CCSNH to customize the educational and training process so that individuals evolve from program students to skilled workers who have an understanding of the company hiring them, its goals, and what it takes to succeed.


“The community colleges show a clear understanding of the workforce needs for advanced manufacturing and the technology sector in New Hampshire, and are moving smartly and quickly to address those needs.”

Trustee & former President, NH High Technology Council
